Picture of Button tree cushion
A cute little button tree cushion - a lovely way to recover your old neglected cushions, simple and easy to do took me around 2 hours tops in total and most of that was sewing in the buttons....

You will need
- old cushion
- fabric for trunk, back panel and main cushion fabric.
-BUTTONS !!!!!
- bonda-web (that iron on gluey stuff for fabrics with many names)
-Sewing machine
-Thread, sewing needles ect.


Step 1: Find a tree shape!

So I googled basic tree outlines, and found a style I liked and altered it slightly so that the branches weren't so spindly.

Then cut out your new template and pin to your the trunk fabric.

Cut around your template and once complete unpin your template and tadah you have your tree trunk :)
